the view of the sea
from the kitchen of
our 260 year old farmhouse
in a remotely quiet
and beautiful area
on old head
to where the lusitania and its crew lie at rest
down winding roads
to where the sailors catch the wind
in the city of kinsale.
“we are tied to the ocean.
and when we go back to the sea,
whether it is to sail or to watch –
we are going back from whence we came.”
-john f. kennedy
